RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ – The team at Tri State strives to make the Thanksgiving Holiday about giving every year by hosting a Turkey Drive. This year they donated Thanksgiving turkeys in Paterson, NJ. Recently promoted Manager, Paul B., discussed highlights that contributed to the event’s success.
This was the second Turkey Drive that Paul B. has participated in with Tri State. The team collectively gathered and donated 22 turkeys to those in need within the community. Paul discussed his favorite moments, the importance of giving back, and philanthropic goals moving forward.
“What makes the impact of these donations so tangible is seeing the expressions on people’s faces,” Paul said. “There was one younger boy that we handed a turkey to and the look on his face showed pure gratitude.”
“My goal when conducting these events is to instill values in my team about how vital it is to give back; especially when we’re doing well in business,” Paul said. “We are always interacting with businesses in the community on a daily basis, so we need to return the favor by giving back to them.”
“Community service events like these put everything into perspective,” Paul said. “It helps to remind myself and my team how fortunate we are to have the opportunity that we’re given in this company.”
Paul added that seeing how appreciative everyone was of their donations reminded him of Tony Robbins’ story, and the necessity of appreciating what some perceive to be the ‘little things’ in life.
The Turkey Drive is just one of many community service events the Tri State team organizes. They participate in at least one event per month. Some key annual events they participate in are: The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, the Coat Drive, and several Food Drives throughout the year.
“With the holidays coming up, my goal is to host a Toy Drive,” Paul said. “We are always open to more suggestions and ideas to ensure that philanthropy is at the center of our initiatives.”
